Well, I hadn't thought of that but now that you mentioned, I
downloaded v8 and spidermonkey sources, 0.5 vs 1.2 million (both
mostly C++). Then in v8 I noticed it has directories for architectures
like arm arm64 mips mips64 ia32. I removed those directories and left
only x87 and x64 and ended up with 333k, with 223k lines of C++ source

To answer your question, I guess it comes down to how much time I have
(as always) which is, not much. But I would definitely like some
"suckless cleanup" in this direction, just like in other directions.
